    I loved the book. As always Elizebeth writes so beautifully. Is there a way I can get in contact with the author?

  2. Rob says:

    The best way is to call the publisher and ask for Elizabeth Berg’s publicist.


  3. Susan says:

    I would like to have a mailing address (a contact) for Elizabeth Berg. I am a huge fan of Ms. Berg’s body of work, and I would like to thank her, especially for her book on writing, “Escaping into the Open.”

    Thanks so much!

    For someone who tends to enjoy privacy in life, Elizabeth Berg is the perfect friend. I look forward to my time with her each time a new book comes out. I have my dear family, some nice neighbors, and a loving husband. I don’t need too many more than that to make me happy. Still, nothing adds more to life than a close girlfriend. Berg is that friend.

    I am big fan of Elizabeth Berg’s and am wondering if she has her book tour published yet.

    I too would love to write to Ms. Berg. I have read all of her books and have also once again picked up “Escaping into the Open” I am the same age as she and read “Pull of the Moon” when it spoke to my feelings like nothing I had read during those early years of being in my 50’s. I then read talk before sleep just after a very good friend had died of cancer and found myself in that book also, but what was the most meaningful experience with her book was when I read “A Year of Pleasures” I was walking thru my favorite bookstore when I saw it just after it had come out. I did not know what it was about, and it didn’t matter, I bought it immediately. I got it out to begin reading it a few days later on the anniversary of my husband’s death and could not believe my eyes. Her character was so much like me in many ways. I could not believe that Elizabeth could put my feelings into words without having experienced the loss of a spouse herself. Perhaps she has, I have no idea, but she has a way with words and expressing women’s feelings that for me are more true to the silent language of my heart than anything else I have read.

    I have read every single one of her books and I feel she knows me from my soul! Her sister-language dialogue is so accurate, it’s like having a conversation with my sister, and I have three others.
    I shyly boast of having a handful of poems published and I am not a magazine person. However, that is how Elizabeth Berg got her start. I am attempting to break into the picture book market. I have written three, but only have a response on one.
    I am embarassed to say that I feel like a geeky freshman honoring one of the senior gods. Well, I guess that sums up my admiration for my favorite author.
    I work part time in a library and always hope to find one I haven’t read in the “new book” section or any I haven’t read in the fiction section of the library.

    Having grown up in Chicago(8 years old at the time of WWII)
    I can relate to just about EVERYTHING in her book, Dream When YOu are Feeling Blue. I slept with my sisters, went to the Cathedral, passed Fritzels, State-Lake, Oriental theatres, ration stamps, etc. It was like a walk back in time for me. My congrats to her on this wonderful wonderful novel.

    I too found Berg by accident. Her stories re-introduce me to parts of myself I’ve lost or let go of, and every book has felt like a reunion with pieces of me. I’m a psychotherapist, and I guess her writing would be called “normalizing”, becaquse she’s so good at helping us feel less alone with some of the crazy randomness of our inner lives. I had no idea this “normalizing” would feel so good. I feel less lonely, and the company is me.
